PHILLIMORE, The Right Hon. Sib Robert Joseph, Bart., D.C.L., is the second son of Joseph Philli- more, Esq., D.C.L., a celebrated ecclesiastical lawyer, formerly Re- gius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford, by Elizabeth, daughter of the Rev. Walter Bagot, of Blith- field, Staffordshire, who was brother of the first Baron Bagot. He was bom in London, November 5, 1810, and educated at Westminster School, whence he was elected to Christ Church, Oxford. He gained the College prizes for Latin verse and prose, and graduated B.A. in 1831, being placed in the second class in classics. For three years after this he was a clerk in the Board of Con- trol. Subsequently he was created a D.C.L. of Oxford, was admitted an Advocate at Doctor's Commons, was called to the bar at the Middle Temple, and in due course was made a Queen's Counsel. As a civilian he gained an extensive practice, and early in his career he obtained various lucrative posts. He was appointed Official to the Archdeaconries of Middlesex and London by Archdeacons Cambridge and Pott, in 1840; Chancellor of the diocese of Chichester by Bishop Gilbert, in 1844 ; and Chancellor of Salisbury by his brother-in-law.
